What are we optimizing for?

Location: San Francisco, CA, USA
Here is what is an interesting problem with God. Mostly he shows up, in your face, hawking whatever the opportunities are. The problem is, everytime he opens the line with his second-hand-car-salesman-grin and says "Consider this your lucky day...", we shoo him away with a; *Not now pal, not interested in whatever you are selling...*

Or maybe, I hypothesize, that God is probably like a buoyant little kid, working hard on his creations, making magnificent things, jumping up and down like a exuberant puppy to show us what is in the making; unbounded; ecstatic..

Its just that we are too busy with our strange rituals called the "meetings" and "answering to emails" or whatever the heck we are presumably optimizing for, that we turn him down all the time.

A little gratitude may be in order? The poor little kid...

Oh, I only mean God as a metonym for Life. You would as well replace the word 'God' with 'Life' in this rendition...
